THE UNSPEAKABLE JOY offered Himself for joyful recognition.
This is a further stage of development.
You enter upon it when you realize that I was the expression in time of the Joy of all Eternity. That joy I offered to all who would see in My Way the path of Joy, and who would hail Me, not only as the Man of Sorrows but as the Lord of Joy.
This truth becomes known to those only who give joyful recognition to this all-amazing, all-sustaining, all-revealing JOY.
Too many hinder their work for Me by seeking to justify themselves. You are fighting for Christ the King, not for your-'Self'. The explaining or justifying must be for Me.
In any difficulty with another put yourself in his place and pray that his difficulty may be solved for him.
This will bring about a solution of yours, and help you to see better that for which you should pray. Putting yourself in his place will help to remove the Beam from your eye and thereby enable you to see clearly the Mote in his eye, so you can remove it.
The power to realize the needs of those you contact can only be acquired by absorbing sympathy and understanding from My Life. So, time for knowing Me must be increasingly dear and necessary to you.
Your task is to show the Power of My Spirit working through a life of yielded will, and the Joy that transforms the life when this is so.
When you think of Me as your Rescuer, remember it is not only from sin, depression or despair.
It is from the difficulties of life also and from perplexity as to your path. I solve your problems. I provide the channel through which help will come.
I send My messenger to prepare your way before you. I train you so that you may be fitted for your next task, so that you may be worthy of My promised blessing. That Blessing which I long to shower on you.
